What started as an experiment on finding a reading system that works for me has turned into me once again falling in love with a TBR List. For 8 months in 2019 I created a TBR List and read books off of those lists. Some months I was successful and didn’t deviate and some months I had to add books or take books away. All in all though I really enjoyed having a structured list to go off of so I’m sticking with it in 2020.
New year, same story. Back with another TBR List for your viewing pleasure. My plan is to have 12 books on my list, at least one a Wild Card, every month. This way I will have options and can switch it up. As always I’m okay if I read off my list, but the goal is to try not to. Anyway, here is the next TBR list for 2021.
Another month, another few tweaks to the TBR list. There really was no plan to make any changes but then I got approved for The Love Hypothesis and Hot Copy released. And of course there was the TikTok video I watched that complete sold me on a book. But changes aside I had a solid month of reading. Only one of them blew me away, but every month can’t be hit out of the park.
For May I had to add in one of my favorite rereads, I’ll Meet You There. Honestly if you haven’t met Josh and Skylar you are missing out on some perfect chemistry. Also my hold FINALLY came in for The Midnight Library, so I will be starting the month off with that. The rest are some I have been meaning to read or excited to come out. I can almost guarantee this will change though since I have 6 ARC requests in on Netgalley.
Here is my monthly summary in a picture form:
Are you excited for any of these?
What do you do for a monthly TBR? Do you stick to a list or wing it? Have you read any of these?

I’ve heard good things about the Midnight Library! I keep meaning to get it! My TBR piles are made with the best intentions… I usually make lists based on blogs recommendations and then head to Barnes and Noble! (I need need the physical copy!). However, I have book A.D.D. and will very quickly forget about a book (such as Midnight Library) when something else shiny and fun catches my eye, lol. I just finished an awesome book that we read in book club called “Lucky King” by Bruce Henderson (http://www.brucegriffinhenderson.com/). This book imagines what would happen if fortune cookie fortunes came true. It is going to be a series too that centers around the “Lucky King” a nickname that has been given to him and it seems that he may possess the supernatural ability to determine other people’s fate. Each series will show what happens when someone receives a fortune that ultimately changes their future. This first book is about Jack DuVal, an asshole conservative radio DJ that likes to cause controversy. His voice is his calling card and his claim to fame so what happens when he gets a fortune cookie that says “You will lose what you treasure most.” I like that the book also shows how one set of events/actions can affect others and you read about the lives of seemingly strangers who are impacted by this fortune too. I don’t want to give too much away but I was hooked from start to finish. Happy Reading! Would love to hear your thoughts
I hope to get to Rosaline Palmer soon!
